Have you ever heard a knock at your door, and found a package that you weren't expecting? When you review products for a living, that happens with some regularity. However, I've never opened up the box and still been puzzled by it. Today, I opened up a box to find a mysterious case, which only held further mysteries inside.

The case is a sturdy hard-shell design from Pelican. On the front is a triangular logo with the number 10 on it. Inside I found a strange metal triangle, which was in the same design as the logo on the front. Inscribed on the triangle was a code. There was also a business card, and a small message inside of an envelope.

A mysterious briefcase showed up at GN labs today, bearing the above blackened metal triangle. On the triangle is emblazoned a code, which we entered into the orderof10.com redemption page. The box is branded with a “10” enclosed by a triangle, the same as seen above. Entering the triangle's code into the webpage unlocked our “COMPUTE” piece (Leibniz); the rest of the pieces can be found here. We know that we've got COMPUTE, SlashGear's Chris Barr has Vision, Jack Pattillo of Rooster Teeth has a piece, and Devindra Hardawar of Engadget has a piece.

This is obviously from nVidia. HG Wells' page directly calls to attention that the writer inspired two scientists. A quick Google search revealed that one of those two is Fermi – as in the GPU architecture from GTX 400/500 cards. Fermi, in nVidia nomenclature, led to Kepler, led to Maxwell, leads to Pascal (and eventually Volta).

It's something to do with Pascal. We're just not sure what. The “Fermi” hint is all that was really needed to determine the source, though. My original thoughts were that the box came from either AMD (“Polaris 10”) or NVIDIA (“10XX” cards – e.g. 1080). AMD wouldn't reference Fermi, though.

10x the performance of 980 Ti! All hail Pascal

Let's get as close to the edge of revealing the product in violation of the NDA but not actually violate it... rolleyes.gif

The case must not have been part of the NDA...just the actual card. I'm surprised they didn't snap a pic of the UPS box it came in...

Looks like a joke though... someone got April fools messed up with May fools...

By looking at the benches it's improbable that Pascal will be 10 times faster than Ferni, so it must be 10 times the perf / watt.

10X more expensive.

Take the Sandy Bridge over Devil's Canyon to get to Skylake.

Bingo!

I have a big bang house. I had all the materials for my new house brought in and dumped on a vacant lot. I took a stick of dynamite, lit the fuse on fire and tossed it into the pile of materials. BOOM went the explosion and when the dust settled I had a new house! Amazing isn't it?

I love puzzle/riddle stuff like that. smile.gif

let's hope the mention of "quantum leap forward" will actually turn out true and not overselling thumb.gif

Looks to me like the symbols along the edge of the triangle pieces could match up with the letters on the pages - there is a symbol beneath each letter - didn't these guys ever watch Contact?

This guy doesn't even pay any attention to the symbols on the edge.

If winning were easy, losers would do it.

It's got Async Compute, it's got what plants crave!
